I have been staying at Jackie and Roger's fantastic guest house for almost 5 years and have always been made to feel like part of the family. They are wonderful hosts, the rooms are spotless and the Egyptian silk bed covers make you feel like you're living in the lap of luxury. Jackie's full English breakfasts are nothing short of...

Greeted by a motherly landlady who settled me into a pristine room. Bed comfortable and had a good night's sleep. Unfortunately was unable to locate a light switch for the lamps which were too close to the headboards on the beds and I kept hitting my head on them. Similarly I kept hitting my head on the light fitting in... More

Wonderfully comfortable b&b in a good location for our Cotswold trip. Greeted by Jackie with homemade cakes and a lot of enthusiasm for our 10month old baby, we were well looked after with travel cot and high chair provided and a great bed for us too. Great double aspect room overlooking garden. Ideal location with pub a few hundred yards... More

My wife and I stayed with our 10 month old baby for one night whilst visiting the Cotswolds. Jackie was extremely welcoming and absolutely loves babies! The whole B&B was spotless and professionally run. Especially pleasant were the "extras" such as fresh cupcake, sweets and fresh milk for our hot drinks. We had a great night's sleep, as did baby...

On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically by Jackie. The room was spotless and well appointed. We decided not to take the cooked breakfast as it was an extra charge. It was a little unfortunate that we were largely left to fend for ourselves at breakfast. Of course we are quite capable of pouring our corn flakes and cooking the toast... More

We stayed with Jackie and Roger because our daughter was married in Swindon last month. I had never met Jackie or Roger before, but instantly they made you feel at home in their beautiful B&B. We took all their rooms because there was 8 of us, including the Bride and Groom, whom they made feel like King and Queen. The... More

I stay here on a regular basis for work. Jackie and Roger are friends who always make me welcome, make a fuss of me and have the loveliest guest house - very very comfortable, always spotlessly clean, and gorgeous beds! And the breakfasts are excellent, and always freshly cooked. If you are in the area do check it out -... More

I know this is an extremely long review, but I feel they deserve it! Unfortunately, I only stayed one night at this hotel. My mother and step dad took a double room and I had the single known as the nest. Upon first arriving we were greeted by the land ladie’s son as she was busy looking after her grandchild.... More

My wife and I along with our 10 year old daughter returned to the Old Post Office for our second stay as we loved our first so much. Jackie is an amazing hostess and really makes you feel at home. The rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped. Jackie's breakfasts have to be experienced to be believed! Top Class.... More
